Original Poems

Image: The Old Homestead by Ron Grimes

As a life-long creative writer, I have dabbled in many forms of writing: poems, short stories, flash fiction, memoir, and essays that focus on a variety of topics including history and politics.  I also write songs and create vegetarian/vegan recipes. 

This page is dedicated to providing links to a sampling of my poems; to sample some of my songs, please visit my “Original Songs.”   Other works are forthcoming.

Thank you for visiting my literary home!  Questions, comments, and suggestions are always welcome.
